The Patriot

Unread postAuthor: brian Casey » Sat Dec 30, 2006 9:44 pm

Looking around in these archieves of cannons i have yet to see one type of cannon. One that is dedicated to the greatest country in the world the United states of america. I decided that i would build a cannon In the theme of our great nations flag. The painting is all done by airbrushing and the finished product took about 40 hours of work.

Spec

The ignition is done with an ignition coil and a camera flash circut all put into a nice project box with a NOS Saftey switch inside the chamber there is a chamber short along with a spark strip for a gaurenteed ignition, it also includes a 12v fan with blue LED's and is set on a 555 timer. It is a direct propane injection into a chamber that is 4inchs by 24 inchs long it has an assortment of detachable barrels and is one of my favorite guns yet. Thanks and hope to see some input.

I must admit that's a lot nicer than the first cannon i built and dubbed "The Patriot" http://patriot.mypicgallery.com/

Hats off for a great cannon!

Oh... almost forgot to mention, rebuilt that one about a year ago...

Brian - "One that is dedicated to the greatest country in the world the United states of america."

I don't agree, but anyway the paintjob isn't the best ive seen, but it is classy.

thanks
i didnt mean that i was the only one who ever did a patriot theme but i hadnt seen any of them and i didnt think the paint job was to bad myself it was all airbrushed on. i stayed away from that krylon garbage that stuff is terrible. the stuff i used had no oder to it at all and after i finished all i had to do was clear coat it all.
